Let them put themselves in my place. The slander they have given has come up so far. What are they still defending? Who do we trust? Against the lawyers. They say with 3 trillion rupees that this guy will get out. My daughter has been burned. Enough, I can’t stand it anymore. I’m fighting the pain of a child. One of our daughters is being murdered every day. The decision you make should be a precedent. The classic sentences are, “She cheated on me, I beat myself, I was killed.” Punishment. Her family is involved. I want her out of your court Let the most severe punishment be meted out. “

Because of being his brother. I demand my release, “he said.
CEMAL METIN AVCI: “I want your justice”

If I had planned before, it would have happened. The vineyard contains gas and other things. I, a 5 year old girl who lost everything, I tell you to make the right decision. I seek refuge in your justice. “
The lawyer for Avcı’s ex-wife, Eda Karagün, who was on trial for the crime of “hiding, destroying and altering evidence”, said: “We do not know if we have blacked out any evidence in the case. Why would he send other people home? A cigarette butt was found. Can he leave any evidence of his own where he went to blackmail? ” Says

I have 2,000 young men.” , I can’t bring them here. When there is no justice “You will give your own justice, brother. What needs to happen? We live in the Republic of Turkey, not the Banana Republic. We do I will not stay in Iran. Enough is enough. I will not leave without burning myself. “
Gultekin’s family lawyer, Rezan Epozdemir, said they would appeal the decision and said:
“There is an unjust provocative defense that has changed three times. There is an unjust provocative practice that is self-evident. There is an unjust provocative defense that is memorized and designed to reduce punishment. There is an unjust provocative defense that no one respects, even within themselves.” , Which changes three times and opposes itself. But this time, the court is appealing to reduce the unjust incitement. Mal Cemal Metin has been translated into 23 years of increasing life imprisonment for Avcı. Mertcan Avcı has been acquitted, which is shameful. The other four accused have been acquitted. This is an unacceptable decision. It is a legal whim. We will use our freedom to get justice. Rule of law. We will appeal against this decision first, and then we will appeal to the Supreme Court.

At the moment, if violence against women and homicide is being fought, let’s see this decision here. Today is a day when the law dies. An embarrassing legal decision, where the law is trampled, is a strange one. We did not trust the court in any way.
Let’s start the fight against violence and murder against women from the Mughals, this decision is an insult no matter how you see it. Don’t be ashamed of yourself. I’m not saying anything else. “
